The wait staff is always pleasant but service is always slow. It takes too long between the time you are seated and greeted. And too long to get your drinks after you place your order. The food is fantastic. I love this place.

Our waitress was superb! Really a good mix of being there when we needed her and leaving us alone, plus she was very kind to give me tastes of two wines and was clever and cool. I loved the taste of my pizza (margherita with eggplant added) but the texture of the pizza was strange- really soft and did not hold up. Also, my leftovers at home were too soggy and weird to eat- and I love pizza left over. The rose I had was good, and the ambience was nice. Just wouldn't return for that pizza, I have to say.

The waiter was not as attentive as we would have like..we began to sit an wait more than to enjoy the meals as something was always missing or delayed. The food was not as enjoyable. The waiter did not explain the dessert options well.

We celebrated Mother’s Day here and had a fabulous experience! Everybody enjoyed what they ordered and our server was very attentive. We went during brunch so they had both the regular and the brunch menus available which was a great selection. We will definitely be back!

You might not expect a pizzeria to serve brunch. However, Cane Rosso has a brunch menu with creative options. Can't beat $1 mimosas! The food was delicious, the service was great and the atmosphere of the restaurant was upbeat.

Cane Rosso is a fun place for good NY style pizza. The fried artichokes are a great appetizer as are the mozerella. Best of all the place is filled with fun star wars decor. Fun place to take older kids for pizza.

The food is decent, management has a big problem figuring out how to target an audience due to the location. Management is completely missing. Rude hostess’, many people standing around doing nothing, best beer product hit and miss. Sorry, but we see a huge waste of money in what otherwise has potential. Simply poorly managed.

This was a family birthday gathering. We got a big corner booth which seated all of us comfortably, including space for multiple pizzas. We ordered and shared the pizzas and had several slices leftover. Service was prompt and attentive. The only challenge was getting glasses and plates from far side of table to server for pickup or water refill, but it didn’t interrupt the experience.

I went on a brunch date and everything about brunch was amazing. We ordered the chicken n waffles and the breakfast taco pizza. The chicken n waffles was out of this world (highly, highly recommend). The pizza was a lot of food (we ended up taking half of it home) and it tasted alright, not bad but not amazing. I think it's trying to be too much so the flavors are a little strange. The best thing of the whole brunch was the amazing drink deals... $1 mimosas and $5 carafes! I will definitely be going back for brunch and taking friends. The ambiance was nice and the service was good (our food came out really fast). Just remember, in Texas, they can't serve alcohol before noon without food on the table. For us, we were almost done eating by the time we got our drinks.

The dress code indicted casual elegant but forget the elegant when there are no table cloths on the table and the wait staff wear T shirts. The food is very good, the Pizzas look great although we didn't have any. It is a nice but very casual place, lends it's self more to Beer and Pizzas. There is ample seating and a nice patio with retractable plastic curtains for inclement weather. Great service.

The prix fixe for Valentine's day was pretty expensive. The quantity and quality of food was poor. My steak tasted ok, but I can make better at home. I'm not a chef and would pay $37.50 for something I've prepared. The service was ok, but I often felt like the waiter didn't really care about my questions or requests. He seemed like he was bored with us, and maybe had other places to be. The atmosphere felt like a boring Chili's.

I'm really glad we made a reservation through Open Table -- the place was packed. The pizza was good -- especially liked the flavor of the crust. I do wish they offered a choice of more toppings.

2 of our group were vegetarians. While there are some menu choices, the waitstaff noted that anything could be done vegetarian - just leave meat off/out. I had the Brussells Sprouts appetizer done vegetarian - excellent! Also enjoyed the Elote casserole. Rest of group had pizzas and salad. All very good. WIll go back. Have already told others.

The food was good but even in an almost empty restaurant we had to go searching for our server a few times to order food. Their mimosa deal was good value but not enough to bring us back. If you are going to shell out $50 for brunch, the service should match the price tag.

I’ve been here many times. The food never disappoints but our server was pretty absent most of the dinner. I ended up finally getting up to pour myself water from a pitcher. I also asked for a side of Calabrian Aioli with my appetizer - which never came - so I asked for it with the pizza - and it still never came. I ended up flagging down another server (because ours was nowhere to be found) and she brought it.

All in all, good pizza, ok service.

We LOVED our dinner! We got the High Roller, which is a giant pizza with 3 kinds of pizza off the menu. It fed 6 of us and each one was delicious! The waiter was prompt and great with refilling drinks. We sat outside and loved the lighting and feel of the seating and area. Definitely coming back as soon as possible!

We enjoyed our meal. The food was good. We had a strange experience with getting a beer. The waitress brought it half full and said the bartender said that’s how they fill it. We asked the manager and she said, no that’s right. I also noticed a weird odor near our table, but no one else smelled it. I would go back. Food was delicious.

Appetizers were plentiful and tasty, especially caponato.
Pizza was also tasty; high quality ingredients and flavorful crust. The big problem that kept this from being a first rate pizza for me, was that the crust was doughy on the bottom. The edges were fine but it lacked a satisfying texture.

On my previous visit, fried calamari was great. On this visit, the calamari tasted like a mixture of leftover and freshly cooked with a large amount of crumbs. The meatball lasagna was a big disappointment. It appeared to be several layers of pasta and meat with no type of sauce in between and a thin layer of tomato marinara sauce on top. The mixta salad and the baked pasta were very good. The service was so-so compared to my previous visit.

Sorry to report that the food is just not good. The pizza is soaked and drooping, the meatballs are less than ordinary, the fried calamari is all breading. I did not taste a single item I liked there.
